Ryanair flights from Prestwick to Luton????

Hi, When did Ryanair stop these flights? Going back to London for a few days in October and jsut checked their website and there are none listed, nor from Edinburgh.

Since there are 4 of us going, and train costs are coming in at over £450 for all of us, we may share driving and stay at hotel with parking. Any suggestions on alternatives for cheap travel?

That train cost looks excessive- are you travelling in more than 12 weeks time? If so, then you are looking too early at the train costs- where the cheap tickets get released exactly 12 weeks prior to the date of travel and not before. We have been to London for £40 return from Edinburgh twice this year by booking at the right time.

Easyjet& BA fly GLA to London. Ba have flights in October from around 45 GBP each way and that includes baggage et al.

Ryanair stopped flying UK mainland domestic routes some time ago.

have you looked at getting a family and friends railcard to cut the rail cost down. Up to four adults can travel on one card.

Also the sleeper train is a great option especially if four of you can share.

Otherwise there's the Megabus and Greyhound.

Plenty of options

Ryanair used to fly Prestwick to Stansted. Easyjet did, and still does as far as I know, fly the Glasgow to Luton route.

Ryanair still list Edinburgh and Prestwick, but I know they had a big bust-up with Edinburgh's operators and have announced they're no longer going to use the airport. [This is something they've done at many secondary airports - setting up regular flight slots, then demanding discounts, otherwise they'll move elsewhere.]

Ryanair's contract at Edinburgh expires in October, Edinburgh Airport have not offered them a special deal, and it seems they have listed no flights after that date.

Not sure about Prestwick ... I suspect the Luton flight went a while back.

Try Easyjet, Flybe, BA ... and you might not have to go to Prestwick either.

Ryanair are still very active running flights in and out of Prestwick and also have a big aircraft maintenance facility there. There was never a luton option with ryanair from prestwick.

Travelling city centre to city centre by train is always my preference from glasgow to london. Its so much simpler! Keep an eye on the virgin rail website for the release of cheap advance fares, usually 12 to 13 weeks before date of travel. If you try booking a train too far out date-wise you'll just get the more expensive rates showing.

As mentioned Easyjet do this route (glasgow/luton). Any reason why you wouldn't fly Easyjet?
